Designed with the family historian in mind this book describes the lives of the fishing communities of Kincardineshire. Sources used in the preparation of this book (some of which are published here for the first time) include family and private papers, local newspapers, books and many other sources together giving a unique insight into the lives of coastal villagers from the perspective of their time - largely untainted by modern interpretation. 

Learn about the lives of the local people, their religious beliefs, local traditions, superstitions, their struggle to prevent starvation, relationships with the local lairds and of course the desperate fight against the cruel, harsh and unforgiving North Sea.
